EMDR Intensives & Extended Sessions

Why extended sessions or EMDR intensives?

  • Brief, client centered & focused on one processing goal at a time.
  • Major decrease in emotional & physical distress related to disturbing life events
  • Facilitates long lasting behavioral & emotional change in less time
  • Intensives allow us to mindfully focus on healing without distraction.    
  • Shorter time frames than other treatments with comparable results

Life has a way of operating in cycles. Patterns or themes of fear, frustrations, disappointments, or unfulfilling and sometimes toxic relationships can continue to rear its ugly head. If you’re noticing patterns in your life and ready for a shift, EMDR just might be for you. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) focuses on past, present and future. In short, trauma and/or disturbing events (too much or too little of something at one time or over the course of time) changes the brain. Past experiences can influence our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in the present and continues to show up in the future until the negative core impact is resolved from an emotional, mental, & physiological release. EMDR enables people the opportunity to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences that have caused adaptive behaviors or feelings in response to the world within or around them. Studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits that once took years to make a difference and shift internalized negative core beliefs that drive their emotions, behaviors, and relationships.  EMDR allows the brain’s information processing system to naturally move towards an adaptive resolution. If this system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense & continued suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing can occur.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes and learn to trust themselves. I focus on the use of EMDR to provide relief in areas that may be difficult to talk about in traditional talk therapy such as traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, attachment related injuries, and intense emotional dysregulation.

Traditional weekly psychotherapy can be difficult to fit into your life. Extended sessions and EMDR Intensives provide the flexibility some people need to resolve current distress or long-standing patterns of behavior or fear. Intensives gives you the ability to manage your time & your healing. Reach out today to see what EMDR can do for you.
